Since FluidStance launched its initial crowdfunding campaign four years ago, our collection of decks has grown. Compare our collection below and find the best balance board for you! We’re on a mission to make the world’s workplaces healthier, happier, more productive, and – yes – more fun.
But what exactly is a FluidStance deck? Maybe you remember standing on a two-piece wooden balance board as a kid, or perhaps you’ve seen some circular balance boards in the corner of a gym. A FluidStance deck is the best standing desk balance board – because it’s evolved for the workplace.

The deck that started it all, The Original is our category-creating balance board, our first board to market. But what sets The Original apart?
For those of you who settle for nothing less than the best, The Original is our most over engineered board, ridiculously durable, and guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Think of the Level as The Original’s next iteration. We took our award-winning original design and built The Level.
The Level offers the same functionally as The Original, at a lower price point. A stunningly simple way to move more, the Level will strengthen and stabilize your body, soothe stiff joints, burn calories, and transform the way you work.
The Plane Cloud is our newest addition. Made of 100% recycled materials, the Plane Cloud features a sturdy plastic base and a cushy, textured foam top. With the same 360∞ tilt-geometry as all of our boards, the Plane Cloud is the perfect way to revolutionize the way you move at your desk.
If you think you’d enjoy the cushiness of the Plane Cloud but prefer the ultra-solid look and feel of The Original or Level, adding an UPMat® to one of these boards is your best bet.
Place the UPMat® on the floor to use as the perfect antifatigue mat, or adhere it to a Level and you’ve hooked yourself up with what we like to call a Level Cloud.
"The switch from standing to using the level was a bit strange at first, but the first day after I got off the level, I felt great! I could feel the work my lower body had done, and after checking my fitness tracker, confirmed that I had definitely burned more calories than I would have using just my standing desk. If you want to squeeze in that much more activity when stuck behind a desk most of the working day, I highly recommend getting a level board. " - Dylan S.
FluidStance underwent rigorous testing by Dr. James Levine and the Mayo Clinic to qualify for a NEAT™ certification. NEAT™ stands for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. This refers to small movements we make throughout the day that burn calories and increase heart rate. Products that are NEAT™ certified are proven to increase heart rate through simple micro movements, and actively burn calories.
Dr. Levine found that on a FluidStance deck, energy expenditure increased by 19.2% vs. sitting. By using a FluidStance deck, you’re actively burning calories by allowing for more movement throughout the day.
